Downloading your plan as a PDF

Updated on Feb 23, 2017

Your LivePlan plan can be downloaded as a PDF document, which is useful if you want to save it locally, email it to others, or print it to any printer. The process for downloading your plan to PDF will be slightly different for each browser. We provide general instructions below.

Note: To open the PDF file, you’ll need to have a PDF reader installed (i.e., Adobe Reader, etc.).
Note: If you are using an iPad or other mobile device, you may not be able to download a Word doc or PDF directly to it. Instead, use a desktop or laptop to download and print your plan.
